WASHINGTON -- Howard's defense stopped North Carolina A&T quarterback Lewis Kindle a yard short of the end zone in overtime to give the Bison a 35-28 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference victory Saturday.
After the Bison (4-4, 3-2) scored on Terrence Leffall's 3-yard run on the first possession of overtime, the Aggies (4-3, 3-1) picked up a couple of first downs to reach the Howard 3-yard line.
Two incompletions and a 1-yard loss on a Mike Mayhew run left them with a fourth-and-4, and Kindle was stopped by defensive end Sackie Kerkulah after a 3-yard gain.
The Aggies came back from a 13-0 halftime deficit to lead 14-13 after three quarters. Both teams scored two touchdowns in the fourth, including a 66-yard run by Mayhew, who had 115 yards on 25 carries, and an 82-yard kickoff return by Howard's Aquanius Freeman.
Howard quarterback Greg McGhee was 21 for 35 for 242 yards and two touchdowns.
